(wait a couple secs to see the shirt)

Hi,
For this contest I thought a lot about the natural process of drawing. I wanted to do something that would get all the dirt in there, the smears and smudges, the eraser bits, the spontaneity and imperfection that comes from sketching. I really wanted to figure out a way to put emphasis on the eraser. So I started messing around with the idea of drawing something that is obsolete, and using the eraser to work with this idea. Since I've been on a kick for drawing animals lately, I decided to sketch a Caspian Tiger. The Caspian Tiger is one of three modern extinct tigers. The last known Caspian was shot in 1947, but the exact date of extinction is unknown. The idea would be to draw a detailed pencil sketch of the tiger, and then after it was drawn, to erase pretty much all of it and leave the smudges and bits on the design.

So, that's what I did, I stopped erasing when I got to the eyes and then I used a spray adhesive to keep the eraser bits on the page for scanning the image.

1 color on white (other light shirt)
Preferred placement shown, but could be larger or smaller

Thanks for all the great comments, I do appreciate it. This was an intense design to work on, as it was the first time I ever spent 3 hours drawing a sketch, only to erase it all.

This is wonderful and so different from what I would expect from a drawing competition; I would LOVE to have this as a print, but I bet the original is beyond better considering it has the eraser bits still on it!!! $5

That was what I'm sayin'...haha

Still supercool. I wondered how you got the eraser bits to show up on the scan. Brilliant... Brilliant!

[+duracell-]

This would be genius if you did a wolf instead.
Also, I would be a little concerned that the smudges on the bottom half would fade after a few washes to where it might not look like much of anything..so maybe they should be a little darker I dunno. Still it's a pretty impressive and printable design, good job.

[+duracell-]

Just watched the video, and all I can say is..wow I can't believe you made such a good drawing with such a shitty pencil.
